Cavendish Uganda

Bachelor of Laws

The rule of law keeps the world from tearing apart at its seams, and that means our legal brethren have a huge responsibility. They are the defenders of constitutions, the champions of the abused, the warriors of our modern way of life. Join the ranks of our dear learned friends at Cavendish University Uganda.

The LLB is a four year Programme designed to introduce students to different legal perspectives, thus creating awareness of the different constitutional aspects which will stimulate students’ ability to translate legal theory into concrete actions within the context of their profession.
